Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt’s job is safe. For three more weeks.

According to team president Michael Bidwill, the son of owner Bill Bidwill, Whisenhunt will coach the Cardinals’ final three games of 2012, and a decision about his future will be made after that.

“I know there is a lot of emotion around yesterday but I don’t intend to make any decision based on emotion. I have been evaluating things all along and expect to continue to do that, and want to have a complete set of facts as I evaluate what went wrong,” he said.

Bidwill acknowledged that sitting through Sunday’s 58-0 loss to the Seahawks was a painful experience.

“We are living and dying with each of these losses and it’s extremely hard to watch,” Bidwill said.

Three weeks is likely all that Whisenhunt has left. The Cardinals started 4-0 and are now 4-9, and Whisenhunt has been completely incapable of getting his team’s quarterback situation straightened out. Bidwill may want to see a complete set of facts before he evaluates what went wrong, but he already has enough facts to know that this team is in need of a major change.
